    Today, 12:03 AM You can use a large ball bearing and just tap it in there (takes a while to find just the right one);) or use the NOE GC expanding die above.

    I give it to the wife and say "Cook this bacon". I like it crispy. I cook nearly everything else, for every meal, but she does the bacon, and the spaghetti. Those are her two items. [smilie=1: Nope, I did NOT marry a cook. :holysheep

    Neither I nor my friends that I cast for can tell the difference in red or blue, except that blue needs less heat to apply (none if you live in a warm area). I'm not a benchrest shooter though. But we don't have leading problems with either one. ...

    I got out to the shed today and cast about 12# of 200gr 358430's from a custom Lee mold. It was a warm day (93) here, but it hasn't rained in a while and so the mosquito population is at a low, so it made for a fairly nice day.

    I'm with you, Retumbo. I probably have enough to alloy 12 tons of lead, but I'd buy more if I saw it in a shop. It's always good "currency" in a trade.
